When a motorcyle is turning

  1. Nov 5, 2004 #1
    When a motorcycle is turning, the bike is slanting on the direction towards the center of rotation. My question is that is the resultant moment is zero?

    If the motorcycle is in equilibrium, no momentum resultant is possible. If not, the motorcycle would fall towards the floor and the motorcyclist would damn Newton.
